The saga of Superman is rebooted by director Zack Snyder ("300") in a visually stunning reimagining with a darker tone than the Christopher Reeve-starring adventures ... not a surprise, since the producers include Christopher Nolan, who gave Batman new screen life as "The Dark Knight."
Henry Cavill assumes the role of the Krypton native who comes to Earth, as does an enemy from his home turf: General Zod (Michael Shannon), who has a score to settle. Amy Adams is the newest Lois Lane in an impressive cast that also includes Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane. DVD extras: three "making-of" documentaries. *** (PG-13: P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
